UAVOS is flight testing a helicopter unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that a company official believes could deploy a weapon such as an airborne missile.

Aliaksei Stratsilatau, UAVOS board chairman and lead developer, told Jane's on 2 May that this is because this UAV, the UVH-290E, demonstrated precise controls during flight tests. The aircraft also has four hard points, two on each side. But UAVOS has yet to deploy any weapons during testing because it does not have any military contracts, Stratsilatau said.
